Hi, I am a June seesion participant in UX group and I want to participate in July for vaping. I finished all requirements but I found myself not yet in the vaping group (the group listed in hamburger menu) and I am worried about that. Does it sound right? @ddas

Hi Zihao, I have not finished adding June participants as yet. Will add you right away. You have done great work in UX and we look forward to your contributions in the new project.

Thank you!

Thank you so much!

Hi! What exactly are we supposed to put under “Three Achievement Highlights (from this week) that show you are ready for this project. Can be related to project details and/or Gsuite + Platform usage” in the self-assessment form?

Any 3 achievements that you think are relevant. No specific answer expected. This is the self-assessment part. The rest are screening questions.

The ability to self-assess is an importnat skill that you will work on during the virtual-internship.

Got it! Thank you!

How will we know when our team will be meeting? Will the team leads email everyone, post it in this forum, or will there be a calendar posted what times we are meeting per week?
